Vermont lawmakers are going to investigate allegations that the Department of Corrections isn’t following its procedures.

Senator Vincent Illuzzi, a member of the Joint Corrections Oversight Committee, says that inmate advocates outlined the charges for lawmakers last month. Some of the concerns include a failure to provide proper mental health care to inmates, and a climate that discourages inmates and staff from filing complaints.

The committee will be holding a hearing on the issues on Tuesday at the Statehouse.
